Arbroath 2-1 Stenhousemuir

Dayle Robertson's late strike gave second-bottom Arbroath victory over Stenhousemuir in Scottish League One.

It was Stenny who moved ahead with Darren Smith slotting home following build-up play by Sean Higgins.

However, Arbroath soon levelled when Christopher Scott lashed the ball into the net just before the 20-minute mark.

And, with time beginning to run out, Robertson netted from 12 yards to give Paul Sheerin's side their first win in 12 matches.
